Book review: Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin

Through Waters Deep (Waves of Freedom Book 1)

This is surprisingly the first Sarah Sundin novel I’ve read, and I really enjoyed this! Why did I wait so long to read one of her books?!

I didn’t realize before reading this that I really enjoy romance novels set in the 1930s and 1940s. It shouldn’t have surprised me since I love Grace Livingston Hill novels, and her books all took place during the time she wrote them, from around 1900 until the 1940s.

This book was just like reading a Grace Livingston Hill novel! I especially liked the naval background of the hero and the parts at sea.

I also liked the mystery aspect a lot—another aspect that was like a Grace Livingston Hill novel, since she wrote a few romantic suspenses. The romance developed very slowly and gently between the characters, and the romantic conflict was just so great! I was actually tense as I read to see how they would finally overcome and get together!

The spiritual parts were done extremely well, making them seem very natural parts of the characters’ dialogue and growth. It was such a joy to read a Christian romance that isn’t preachy, but is still a strong testament of Jesus’s love and His power of transformation in our lives.

I can’t recommend this enough! I’m looking forward to reading the second book in the series!
